Euryale ("far-roaming"), in Greek mythology, was one of the immortal Gorgons, three vicious sisters with brass hands, sharp fangs, and hair of living, venomous snakes. She, like her sisters, was able to turn any creature to stone with her gaze. Her sister Stheno was also immortal, but Medusa, the last of the sisters, was mortal. They were daughters of Phorcys and Ceto, or sometimes, Typhon and Echidna. In many stories, Euryale is noted for her bellowing cries, especially in the tale of Medusa's death at Perseus' hands. 

Some legends claim the gorgon Euryale as the mother of Orion, though others form a new Euryale as daughter of King Minos of Crete.
